Copper (II) chloride for your pigment, process chemical, catalyst and life science applications

William Blythe can manufacture copper (II) chloride solution to contain between 30 and 40% CuCl2 to meet your exact requirements. Copper is catalytic and copper (II) chloride solution is used for the manufacture of process catalysts by impregnation into high surface area support materials, for example, an oxychlorination catalyst for the manufacture of vinyl chloride monomer.

In solution, the copper ion is a mild oxidising agent and displays the characteristics of a Lewis Acid. The oxidising properties are used in the recovery of platinum group metals such as platinum and palladium. Many useful copper compounds are precipitated from solution (for example copper carbonate and copper hydroxide) and copper (II) chloride solution is a convenient copper source for such reactions.
